Default skx031 to 62MAS

Hi all,
Modding seiko is new to me.
I have started with SKX031 that i mod into 62MAS look, but got stuck because of several issue:

1. The crown guard triming, i got stuck since i couldnt release the crown tube. I couldnt go with trimming further
Need advice on how to release the crown tube

2. Stuck in insert replacement since i couldnt release the original bezel insert.
Also need advice here



anyway here is the work on progress journey picture from the begining until now:


condition when i got this little guy





parting out next to few AM parts




Managing to get rid all of the bruises on the case + trimming the crown guard and recreate the bevel is super tough with the tube stuck there,








list of the parts for this project:
- used skx031 from local source
- 62mas AM dial
- 62mas AM handset
- 62 mas AM insert
- waffle tropical rubber strap
- SDF spring loaded bar
- skx007 crown
- sapphire crystal with purple AR coating

since i couldnt get the perfect fit 62mas insert for this skx031 (i bought 2 pieces from different source previously), so i decided to custom DIY it.

And that is the closer of my SKX031-MAS
